    ive changed mine since ive owned it for 4 years every 3000 - 4000 Kms ( 1800 - 2500 miles ) with quaker state 5W-30 conventional and a fram oil filter. Am i changing it too often? my friends say im wasting money doing that but i want my car to last long so what do u think? how often do you guys change your oil?

    I use Mobil 1 synthetic which is good for about 5000 but i still change it every 3000. I just like changing it. I use fram and have never had a problem. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    I change every 3000 miles with Valvoline Maxlife 10w40 and the crappy Fram filter (just learned they suck, so I guess I'll try something else).
    Car has 139,100 today. I got it in May of '05 with 122,600 miles. She's the daily commute.
